Everyone has a different way to approach things. I’ve spent years learning from people from all walks of life. I’ve learned from ex-hippies, Vietnam vets, and career academics. I’ve learned from those interested in science, literature, speech, mathematics, and communication. Each person has taught me something new. These lessons have helped shape who I am today. As a graduate student, a young professional, and as simply Angela Swenson, I have my unique views. By spending time here with me, I’ll introduce you to some of the viewpoints that have emerged as these people and experiences have SHAPED AND MOLDED who I am today.
